Cedille artists shine in Chicago summer concert line-up

A key component of Cedille Chicago’s mission is bringing artists from Chicago to the attention of audiences worldwide. We are proud to play a part in the international success experienced by so many artists who have recorded with Cedille. It is exciting when our favorite Cedille artists perform in Chicago, and even more so after more than a year without live in-person performances.

There are several Cedille artists who will perform in Chicago this summer. We hope you’ll have the opportunity to experience in person, once again, these exceptional musicians whose artistry Cedille is so proud to document and promote. Your support helps ensure that their work is shared throughout the world.
